The last book in the series for me is a bitter-sweet departure.

I loved this world, some of the characters and loved to hate other characters.
Being an ardent believer in Wildlife preservation and active in many causes regarding said preservation this has been a series close to my heart from the get go.
In this, the last of the series I am once again reminded how we as humans are messing up this gift of a planet we inhabit. Being on top of the food chain is something we are truly not worthy off.

Review 6******

This is the sixth and final book in The Species Intervention Series. I loved it!

Wow, where do I start?! I'm still reeling! I usually do a character breakdown, but this book is told from several different points of view, so it would take me forever to do so in this instance. Therefore, I'm just going to dive right into my review.

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book, because I wanted to see how Netty, Wil, Abby, Scott, Jose, Chloe, Cobby, Kane, Ginger Mae, Peter, Dai

The One concludes the Species Intervention #6609 Series, and is as gripping and thought-provoking as the earlier books. It follows the fates of the survivors of Armageddon, and the recovery of the Earth after the bombs. J.K. Accinni’s writing is, as ever, poignant, acutely-observed and unflinching from the extremely important issues she raises. These books will stay with me for a very long time, and I think about them every time I switch on the news and watch more stories of people’s cruelty to ...more

Aliens to the rescue...sadly...

A terrific almost last chapter in this inventive saga. I am exhausted with the miriad of emotions the author pulled from me. Now matter what, this series will stay with me for a very long time.

This should be called the Hive meets the tribe. Suzy has passed and her twins vie for control of the tribe. Irony is at the forefront as her son Seth turns out to be obsessed with taking control and hates his twin sister Lorna.(The only two names Suzy recalls from her childh

Dogma over plot

Dogma over plot

The series drew me in. As a strong feminist, I appreciated the strong spirituality of the women. but the theme is far too negative about men. It would appear that all evil comes from men. Nope, I can't accept that idea. Also, the story ends with this book. Further stories just jump the shark. Don't bother reading any more of series. All in all, great idea for the plot, but political and cultural dogma took over, ruining what could have been a fine saga.

This is the last book in the series and it is just as intense as the other books.
You are taken into the future to where people are now in their 90's.
The survivors are still underground and of course have become quite comfy leaving within the Hive but they would like to see how the world above them is doing. Is it livable?
The remaining survivors get more surprises in this book along with secrets that become out in the open. Especially Netty, I was like wow! There is so much I could go onto this r

Finally...a new alien world instead of the old familiar one

This is the last of the series although I heard there might be another out in aug 2014. Good thing. I am already having withdraws. Our survivors have surfaced and now live in a post apocalyptic world. Try starting over from scratch with just a few tools. A good thing they have the Kreyven who is no longer such a terrifying monster now that everyone understands what it is.

I love the introduction of the new creatures and the evil that is p

The One (Species Intervention #6609 Book 6) by J.K. Accinni is another awesome read! I adored the beginning of the book as we learn there is a tribe of survivors in the Franklin Mines. The very mine that the Kreyven got all of the wonderful gems stones to make the bathing cave in the Hive.This tribe has been doing some hideous things. Many are deformed and babies with huge deformities are not allowed to live.

The Womb shows its generous side by allowing the Elders to save them from starvation by

Yet another smasher from J.K Accinni! All of her work has such an imaginative writing style and it is very hard to put one of her books down once you have started reading. This book was no different!

Some parts of the book was very hard hitting, but it is definitely what kept me engaged and thirsting for the next one… which is apparently not released until next year!

The author engrosses you with elements of suspense and surprise, which I love, and this has been the reason I have become such a h

I have now read this book 2 times....

As I purchased this book I knew that it was going to be a hard and sad review for me to write when I was done reading it…. You see for me the ending if this phenomenal series is like losing precious loved ones that have helped me open my eyes to the many devastating events that our not so perfect world that we live in has become.

Author J.K. Accinni has created such an amazing collection of stories that put together as a whole has a dynamic message for us to

The previous books in this series I thoroughly enjoyed and I couldnt put them down but with this finally book there was something missing and I can't put my finger on it.
The author has a fantastic imagination to create such a great book series which I can honestly see as a movie but the ending to me was disappointing. I had already predicted who 'The One' was long ago, so I was not surprised when it was announced. But to me it was the right person all along but I did expect more from 'The One'.

Accinni is an amazing storyteller, and I have been completely amazed by the overwhelming ability she has to suck a reader into such a rich story. Starting with Echo, I tore through all if this writer's books and waited patiently for The One to be released.


I gave The One a 4/5 stars rating on Goodreads, just one star less than the other five books. It is amazing what J.K. did in developing early 20th century characters and evolving them as well as the massive cast the ought the series s

The One is the sixth installment to the species intervention series. This book follows the survivors through the many years in the hive and when they finally leave it to see the new world. It isn't my favorite installment of the book as I didn't feel that it had as much emotion or action as some of the others in the series. However I still found it to be a very good read! I like how it tied all the loose ends together, and we FINALLY learn who The One really is! It wasn't as unexpected as I thou ...more

It was a good series, but I still felt that the characters were a bit one dimensional. The good tended to be very good and the bad, very bad. Unlike many others, I just didn't care enough about echo and baby.
There was definitely a message in the series: that we should be far more respectful of the animals we share our planet with and that's not a bad thing.

Time has flown, and its almost time to go back out into the world. Once they step out Kenya goes into labor, but because of the way the Hive works, she has to deliver the baby outside. They post 2 guards out but something attacks and kills them, new type of bird called a Flamer. But the group slowly rebuilds. The other tribe come looking for the spot, and find the members. But where the Hive members grew to think of themselves as family, the other tribe was raised on hatred and who should contro ...more

I am so sorry to see the conclusion of one of my most interesting discoveries. This series has sucked me in, churned me up and left me reeling. It will forever be close to my heart. I know I will see Baby and Echo, Wil and Netty, Scotty and Chloe and Kenya and Kane in my dreams but I feel lost. The author made me live in their world, cry with them, scream with them, rejoice with them...and love with them. I respect the authors commitment to her cautionary warning. We must learn how to respect on ...more

Well, the final book in the series starts 100 years later. The people inside the hive have not aged and are in perfect health. Those on the outside are struggling and fighting amongst themselves.

There are lots of twists and turns in this book, so I won't elaborate on them as that will take away their importance.

Will and Nellie finally tell everyone what to expect and that they will be leaving the hive. The world is so different from the one they left. New plants, new animals, new climate.

I've loved this series from the beginning and was eagerly waiting for the last installment.
This book has twists and turns and revelations. Questions answered. Sad moments. Very happy moments and Devastating moments.
It was everything I was hoping for and more. There were several moments that had me in tears.
I've come to love these characters and I'm so sad that this amazing ride with them is over now.

This had been one of the most emotional series I have ever read. I know it's supposed to be sci fi but It seemed too real to life with normal people.A few nutcases here and there but that's normal too, isn't it? This sensational series got better with every new book, unlike some that fail to keep consistency. I will sorely miss the motley crew of survivors and wonderful animals that revolved around one of the most detailed and original sagas of armageddon I have ever had the luck to come across. ...more

Great end of this series, with lots of things happening you could have expected from the previous books, lots of surprises up to the end. The One was not who I expected it to be, but not a big surprise either.
Just wished human beings could be more like they were supposed to be, caring about each other and everything around them. But we can only hope we'll learn a lesson from these books. Thanks a lot for letting me enjoy the ride through the end of the world with this series!

The One by J. K. Accinni is the amazing. This is the most compelling, heart wrenching book in the Species Intervention 6609 series. It is full of so much information from the two different surviving factors, but the flow is even and consistent. I was on the edge of my seat. The two factions are definitely and experiment in nature vs nurture, and believe me, nurture wins, hands down. I love these characters so much. So many tears shed....

very sad to see this series end. I've followed it from the start. i'm hoping there is a spin off for it.

this book ... what can I say? some parts I thought would happen, and others made me gasp out loud and I could NOT believe what just happened! I was so shocked at one point I had to put it down to take a break, but 5 minutes later I had to pick it back up because I couldn't stand not knowing!

great series and I will miss all the characters!

I have truly loved this series from the beginning. Im not usually a fan of sci-fi, but this series captured my heart. This author took an amazing concept to a whole new level. Humans have basically destroyed the Earth and intervention is needed. In the final book of the series we learn how truly corrupt humans have become. I am sad this series is over! "Life goes on, no matter the heartbreak." Very true quote that fits the story perfectly. WaAR

What an end to an awesome series! The One was so different than I expected it to be. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! I ended up finishing the book in 2 days. While the series started off in a unique way, it ended in an even more unique way. I ended up both sad and excited by the outcome of the book. I would love to have another series follow this one that told the future of the characters after the end of this book!

Rating: 9.0/10.0

Review: Author J.K. Accinni does it again in her 6th book of the Species Intervention #6609 series. I was not disappointed with this book. In fact, I was quite surprised the way the book turned out. I loved how the author was able to add a bit of mystery into this book as well as the normal Sci-Fi aspects and the survival aspects. I'd recommend this book to any Sci-Fi fan!
